    Shes only asking for 75k.

    Id be asking for $100 million and the officers responsible and in charge to be charged, fined and fired.

    Im no bleeding heart. Murderers, rapists and child molestors who are proven without any doubt guilty, should be hung like the worthless dogs they are.

    Losing your arm while in handcuffs in police custody? Simply unacceptable and she didnt "get what she deserved". The cops dont get to hand out street and jailhouse justice.

    There is nothing in that story to actually connect her being handcuffed to her medical condition that resulted in the amputation.

    Just because she is suing does not mean her description is fact. You have read her biased story and are ready to convict.

    Id love to read any alternative version of events and the timeline of events.

    She left her house WITH TWO ARMS after being tased and arm bared and handcuffed by a bunch of cops...in jail for a week...then has to go to hospital for arm amputation and leaves with ONE ARM.

    Yes i know a person can sue or claim anything, those people usually have the same number of limbs before and after police custody though.

    If i come out of the police custody minus an arm, im going to be pissed off, then rich.

    You know she was armed barred? You know she had no other medical conditions? You know that all other causes of the septic condition have been ruled out? You know how long after her release from jail she was hospitalized? You know how long it takes for her condition to reach the point of amputation? You know if she attacked the officers or not?

    Did you read that her attorney said he "thinks the handcuffs were too tight"? Can THAT cause her condition?

    Come on man, you are smart.......

    2 arms before

    1 arm after

    Yes. We dont know the details. Yes weird stuff happens to us frail humans. (im starting to think TXI is a police computer, possibly a robot)

    I wish there was an easy way to track the trials and outcome of most of these news stories that we kick around. Would be interesting for sure to follow all of the cases. But i cant do that. Im not a computer or robot.

    "The attorney says while his client sat in jail, she made 16 requests to see a doctor for treatment but was denied"


    I think this is the key to the lawsuit. If she was tased, it was probably because she was fighting.
    So the the original injury may be hard to pin point. But if she was denied medical help that is a
    different animal. It may be why they are asking for what seems like a small amount for a loss of limb.

    I'll wait until all the facts are out before I pass judgement. Had to go to the bathroom? Maybe she was trying to flush drugs. Compartment Sydrome? Using dirty needles can cause blood poisoning as well as numerous other "septic" conditions. Or maybe LEO was negligent. Who knows?
